You can see some of Western Australia’s unique animals at Dryandra Woodland, less than two hours drive from Perth.
This area is home to more than 100 species of birds and 24 mammals making it perfect for animal watching.
Take a walk through the woodland and watch for echidnas, woylies, possums, kangaroos and the elusive numbat.
Learn all about the animals on a 25 kilometre radio gravel drive trail, the Sounds of Dryandra, which travels through open woodland scenery. The trail includes six stops that transmit interesting stories about the history and animals of the area. Or, you can go bushwalking on one of the many tracks to see wildflowers, birds and natural bushland.
An endangered animal sanctuary called Barna Mia is nestled in the heart of Dryandra Woodland and definitely worth a stop.
On a guided nocturnal walk you can see a number of threatened species of marsupials like wallabies, bilbies, bandicoots and boodies.
There’s cottage accommodation at Lions Village, you can camp at Congelin Campground or stay at one of the local farm-stays.
